THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD

About:

The Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education uses gentle movement and directed attention to help people learn new and more effective ways of living the life they want. You can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement. Since how you move is how you move through life, these improvements will often enhance your thinking, emotional regulation, and problem-solving capabilities.

((The Feldenkrais Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics, and an empirical understanding of learning and human development. By expanding your perception and increasing awareness, you will become more aware of your habits and tensions and develop new ways of moving. By increasing sensitivity, the Feldenkrais Method assists you to live your life more fully, efficiently, and comfortably.)))

(((Awareness Through Movement classes show you how you can use slow, mindful movements to improve your strength, flexibility and sense of ease. Uniquely, the Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education (of which Awareness Through Movement is a part) directly relates every lesson into functional parts of your daily life, whether that’s more graceful walking, lifting things safely, or improving your breathing and sense of mental clarity.))))

THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD

Program Information:

Rather than modelling the movements for the student, the teacher’s role is to create an environment in which the students can learn from the inside out, make connections within and between the movements, and own the material in a way that creates lasting improvements, in a way that merely imitating a teacher’s external movements can never imitate.

You can expect a class to last somewhere between 30 and 90 minutes. You might be in a variety of positions, but typically lying on the floor, or else sitting in a chair. You might walk, stand, or kneel while engaging in a carefully-orchestrated sequence of movements designed to help you discover unexpected ease in movements that previously required concentration and effort.


Group and Private Lessons available by appointment.
